How to Convert Poundals to Meganewtons

To convert a poundal measurement to a meganewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One poundal is equal to 1.3825E-7 meganewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

meganewtons = poundals × 1.3825E-7

The force in meganewtons is equal to the poundals multiplied by 1.3825E-7.

For example, here's how to convert 5 poundals to meganewtons using the formula above.
5 pdl = (5 × 1.3825E-7) = 6.9127E-7 MN

Poundals and meganewtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Poundals

The poundal is a unit equal to the force needed to move one pound of mass at a rate of one foot per second squared.

The poundal is a US customary and imperial unit of force. It's also used in the foot-pound-second (FPS) system of units. Poundals can be abbreviated as pdl, for example 1 poundal can be written as 1 pdl.

Poundals can be expressed using the formula: 1 pdl = 1lb × fts2

Meganewtons

One meganewton is equal to 1,000,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The meganewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 109. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN, for example 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
